This document includes a final report and curriculum manual from a project to help adult educators teach team training by developing a curriculum for use in teaching teamwork skills in work force literacy programs and by providing two half-day seminars to assist adult educators with effectively using the curriculum. The manual for work force educators has nine chapters that focus on the following topics: self-directed teams, conflict resolution, problem solving, leadership, motivation, self-esteem, communication, decision making, and interpersonal relations. The curriculum provides informational materials as well as a variety of activities to be used when introducing the topics. The activities provide opportunities for the participants to interact and practice using the skills that they will need to become productive members of self-directed work teams. An activity sheet follows this format: objective, procedure, necessary materials, and discussion questions. Contains a resource guide listing 19 resources. (YLB)
